I remember Dail from my earliest days. The Millet family were neighbours with my grandparents. Dail was a role model and incredibly patient man with us children. He had a heart of gold and taught us to enjoy the sea. We spent many days on the Foinst Kind travelling around Mahone Bay. Dail was larger than life and he was always so thoughtful and interesting. He had much to teach. Marilyn, Peter, Lisa and John, we grieve with you but if I ever wanted to live a life, it would be Dail's. Such an amazing man.

So many memories of summers on the water, boats rafted together, excursions to shore. It seems like yesterday and it seems like forever ago. Sending love to Marilyn and all the family.

Dail was a valued member of the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. I remember inspecting the Foinst Koind one day and asked Dail "How you do pronounce that?" In his beautiful Lunenburg accent he replied "Just way I say it." He was right, of course. A wonderful man.
